Independent Musical Artist Stories

By |2018-05-08T08:59:37-04:00May 8th, 2018|Categories: Official, Opportunities, Stories|Tags: , , , |

Introduction Over the years, many of you, thousands, have submitted your musical artist stories, including from our Indie Music Monday platform, along with your bio's and music. The other day I was thinking, man, many of these stories are really good! Then I got to thinking that it might be a good idea to share some of them with our readers. So, I have written some code to extract them all from the submissions so that I may go over them and pick out a few each week to feature here at Indie Music Bus. I still have a bit of work to do yet before I can make this happen, but it won't take long. What do you think about this? Comments are open at the bottom of this page. Musical Artist Stories Stories are the main attraction for [...]

By |2018-05-05T15:21:26-04:00August 18th, 2017|Categories: Exclusive Features, Indie Music Support, Official, Promotion|Tags: , , , , |

Indie Music Force™ - Street and Web Teams Central Indie Music Force are Music Fans and Supporters a Virtual and Real Street Team – Ride Indie Music Bus™ Many years ago, on our first website called ClubKnowledge we had a virtual street team application that grew popular. Inspiration came from a service offered by mp3.com, “Promoter” platform. When mp3.com closed, our platform soon went with it. Today, the internet offers the road to travel on for both artists and music fans. We already offer many services for artists and believe it would be amazing to offer a platform for the supporters of independent music too. Let the world hear the music fans voices!   New Logo, T-Shirt Design and Flyers As we speak, we are working with Ian Husbands to design all the graphics we will use going forward. We [...]

Five Benefits From Listing Radio Stations With Us

By |2018-05-19T05:32:10-04:00July 11th, 2017|Categories: Internet Radio, Official, Official Directory, Opportunities, Promotion|Tags: , , , |

Listing Radio Stations Back Story Before we get into the topic of listing radio stations, a bit of a story! It all started way back in the year 2000. I was just getting into the independent music scene.  Jody Fadley (RIP) had started a new band called JSR and I wanted to help promote them if I could. MP3.com was all the buzz then. One thing lead to another and I learned about internet radio stations. This excited me greatly, so I began searching for these radio stations. It was very difficult and tedious to say the least! Many websites were no longer active. Many stations didn't support independents or the genres of Rock or Alternative Rock, JSR's sound. Then the idea of a directory of indie radio stations was born. Compiling a listing of stations that had the qualifications [...]

By |2017-07-30T07:33:53-04:00July 3rd, 2017|Categories: Conceptual, Official, Opportunities, Promotion|Tags: , , , , |

Daily #IndieGrowth Hour What is #IndieGrowth you ask and why daily? It is something new that we will be testing out on Twitter. An hour long daily Twitter discussion or cross promotion event. The reason for a daily event is to give more people the chance to participate. Let's face it, not many will be there everyday if any. Topics could be: New music releases Discussion about new trends or services in the industry Ideas for social media and email marketing Here is how we think it will work: During a specified hour music, industry folks subscribe to the hashtag #IndieGrowth Each participant offer a well crafted relevant Tweet on a predetermined topic Participants should retweet and follow some of the tweets and music industry folks During these hour long sessions: Promote the concept of networking via social media events Cross [...]

Evolving & Revolving Promotions

By |2017-06-17T00:35:32-04:00June 16th, 2017|Categories: Conceptual, Official, Opportunities, Promotion|

Concept for Music Blogs and Interview Sites Evolving & Revolving Promotions to work together using cross promotions for the good of the artists and each other! This would also make all brands involved more appealing to the artists! We want to offer a directory to make it easy to cross promote great talent and content. Each service posts a list of talent they have interviewed, reviewed etc and who they believe worthy of promotion. Two parties offer their list of talent that they believe to be worthy of promotion. Each party would evaluate each others list to find an act to feature, interview, review or whatever the brand's services are. If both parties can agree on a trade, then they would both do what they do and cross-promote each others resulting content. The site would lock the lists for both [...]
